Community GardenPosted: January 16, 2012 Filed under: Child Centered Activities, Farming off the Farm, Little Green Thumbs 5 Comments
Our family has one of 35 plots at the new community garden site in town. This summer we helped build the beds for the 10′ x 10′ plots. In addition there will be 2 handicap beds, a children’s garden and 3 sites for composting.
We expect to plant carrots, tomatoes, kale, spinach, arugula, eggplant, snap peas, cucumber, and patty pan squash. I took E to visit the site as it’s important for her to see it during the different seasons and phases.
Good for you, B. Tell me about the handicapped ones …. xo M
SO great you snagged one. around here, there are lotteries and campin’ out all night to get in line. i cannot wait to see the abundance and plethora that comes from that 10-by-10 plot. xoxoxo
Thanks for visiting! I didn’t get a photo of the handicap accessible plots but will next time we go. Basically the beds are 3 or so feet off the ground and roughly 3′ x 10′ so that a person can access all of the garden from a seated position.
How wonderful,and how impatient you must be for planting time.
Wonderful! Great pictures. I’ve never been a gardener myself, and fear it will never happen…but I sure do appreciate those who do.
